Since I've had braces, only 1 or 2 popped off by themselves. However, I've popped off 2 by accident.

1 popped off while eating fried chicken. I know, I know. It was on the No NO list.
1 popped off while eating a salad. I was actually shocked that it popped off because I had braces on for a while and had no problems eating salads.
1 popped off while biting my finger nails. I couldnt find my nail clippers, and the hangnail was killing me!

Other than that, they rarely pop off....
